Many women struggle to find an effective skin care regimen, as very often, a regimen that used to leave your skin soft and firm doesn’t seem to work anymore.

Namely, your beauty regimen may need some changes as your body starts to change. Or, you may need to add some passion fruit to keep your skin hydrated and soft.

What Makes Passion Fruit Beneficial?

Besides being a very refreshing and delicious fruit, the passion fruit provides numerous health benefits. The list is as follows:

-          Improves blood circulation
-          Improves eye health and reduces the risk of macular degeneration
-          Regulates bowel movements  and promotes digestive health
-          Protects against heart disease, premature ageing, and even cancer

Vitamin C

Passion fruit is abundant in vitamin C, a nutrient which is extremely beneficial for the overall health. It is full of antioxidants which protect our cells from damage by fighting free radicals. By now, most of us are already familiar with this. However, few people know that this vitamin is beneficial for the skin as well.

As a matter of fact, vitamin C protects the skin from harmful effects of the sun. Interestingly, it neutralizes free radicals to protect against UV rays, unlike sunscreen which absorb the UV rays. Even the sunscreen contains antioxidants; they lose their ability to protect the skin when combined with chemicals.

When these chemicals absorb infrared radiation, they produce free radicals thus reversing the antioxidants` ability to destroy them. Therefore, vitamin C is far more effective in protecting your skin than sunscreen, which has been found to block only 55 percent of free radicals. Ingredients rich in vitamin C, such as passion fruit, protect our skin from both burns and wrinkles.

The nutrient associated with citrus fruit is essential for the production of collagen, a protein which supports skin`s elasticity. It supports and strengthens the skin while replacing dead skin cells. Given the fact that collagen production declines as we age, feeding our body enough collagen is of utmost importance.

Vitamin A

This vitamin is also effective in reducing the signs of ageing, as it evens the skin tone, thickens the layers underneath, and smoothes wrinkles when converted into retinoic acid. This acid is collagen booster as vitamin C and it even treats conditions like burns, acne, and eczema.
